Mailbox Monday #109

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Lady Q of Let Them Read Books.  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.  Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Girls Gone Green by Lynn Hirschfield, which I won from Booking Mama during the Green Books Campaign.

From the library sale:

2. Blessing the Boats by Lucille Clifton

3. The Human Stain by Philip Roth

4. Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell, which Anna found and has a quote from my blog on the back.

5. The Battle of Britain by John Ray

6. When Can I Come Home? by Murray Polner

  4. Congrats on the blurb on Rumor Has It! That is exciting. Great book week for you and your little one. The Dr. Seuss books bring back so many memories of reading them over and over again to my kids. They never got tired of them!

    I received for review The Job by Craig Davis from the author.

    Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig. But along with the Big Boss’ favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mail room! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what’s happened to him, and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss. Joe B.’s great expectations have taken a dickens of a twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good? “The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to Have Happened Somewhere) is a modern parable of ancient troubles and truths.

  6. Great books! Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.
